Toronto Jewish community on alert after threats by hooded men taking photos of synagogue

The greater Toronto Jewish community is disquieted and on the alert after three hooded men took photos and yelled threats outside a Thornhill synagogue.

York Regional Police received a call from Beth Avraham Yoseph of Toronto (BAYT) on Friday, according to Const. Laura Nicolle. That afternoon, alerts went out via email and social media from synagogues across the GTA.

"This past Wednesday night, three men with concealed faces were observed taking photos of BAYT," read one alert posted to Facebook and viewed by more than 20,000 people. "When they were approached, they yelled "F- Jews. Watch!", jumped into their black Volkswagen Golf and drove off. The car's licence plates were covered. Unfortunately, they were out of range of the BAYT cameras. Please be alert when walking, especially near our shul, and be on the look-out for such vehicles and/or people."
